The Academy Awards 2020 Nominees & Winners

oscars

It’s been a rollercoaster of a year in film, a year which has seen women and people of colour and minorities break more ground in front of and behind the camera. Of course, there’s still a long way to go in terms of equality in multiple areas, but the movements continue to gain momentum and bring us diverse, educational, entertaining and beautiful cinema. Having said that, the Golden Globes and BAFTAs haven’t provided us with the diversity we need, and now the Oscars have not proven much different, with the Best Director category in particular missing some amazing female and minority talent. While some women are leading the way in few areas such as Best Documentary and Best Adapted Screenplay and there is a little diversity in the inclusion of international films such as Parasite in many of the major awards catergories, it’s still not enough to represent the wider public. We can only hope that the members of the Academy whose job it is to nominate these films improve their decision-making year by year, and that minorities are given more opportunities to fulfill their creative aspirations and bring us more of what we, as diverse audiences, crave to see.

86th

What follows is a full list of this year’s nominess, with the winners highlighted as they are announced on the evening. The Oscars are broadcast live on Sunday February 9th (a little earlier in the month than usual) via NOW TV (you can get a free trial for NOW if you only want to use it to watch the Oscars) and Sky Cinema (Sky Cinema Oscars), starting at 10pm in the UK with the red carpet and the ceremony kicking off at 1am on the 10th. The event is usually repeated around 8am if you don’t fancy staying up to watch.
